-Focus on the future vs. live in the moment
-Push through stress vs. learn to chill
-Stay busy vs. have fun doing nothing
-Play to strengths vs. learn to make mistakes and fail
-Know your weakness and don’t be soft vs. treat yourself well
-Look out for number one vs. show compassion to others
The article is more than a thirty second read, but the ideas are refreshing alternatives that could ensure a happier and healthier child.
